The 15 and 16-year- olds who are both from Onetangi spent the night of August 25 in a police cell while they sobered up. They were released to their care- giver and will appear in the Youth Court this week. A third youth is being sought in relation to the bur- glary. There has been one case of drink driving in the last week. It involved a 39-year-old man on August 26. He failed the gen- eral breathalyser test when it was taken on Ocean View Rd and elected to have a blood test. Police are holding several sets of keys that have been handed into the station. Among them are some large bunches, set of keys for a Landrover, Mitsub- ushi and a Honda, keys in a small flax kit, keys with a pocket knife attached, keys with a silver penguin attached, a dolphin key ring with one key, keys with a nail clip- per attached, keys with a silver heart and more. They also have an iPod, fishing rod and silver bracelet. Go to the police sta- tion on Ocean View Rd to collect. Following up on family tree mystery By GILL ALCOCK Owner found: Part of a large and well-documented family tree recording the history of the Jennings family found in a Waiheke attic. ' You might expect to find such a comprehensive family tree in England so it is pure gold to find a piece of work like this in an attic in New Zealand. ' Seonaid Lewis Family history librarian Auckland Libraries has reunited a large and detailed piece of family history with its owner but is still seeking information about where it was found. The family tree, which has been intricately documented on a large poster-sized sheet of paper and signed and dated Keiller 1969, was found in the attic of a house on Wai- heke Island. It was given to the local library for safekeeping. Family history librarian Seonaid Lewis, from Auck- land Libraries' Central Auck- land Research Centre, says the find is a remarkable example of genealogical research that someone has spent considerable time pre- paring. You might expect to find such a comprehensive family tree in England so it is pure gold to find a piece of work like this in an attic in New Zealand,'' Ms Lewis says. It is titled A Genealogy of the Jennings and covers the family history of David Jen- nings who emigrated from England to Nelson in 1849. The overall research goes back some 500 years and includes photographs of sig- nificant family members,'' she says. After being turned in to Waiheke library, the docu- ment was restored and pres- erved by library experts. It had been rolled up for some time which affected the photographs and caused some damage to the paper. We have flattened the document, restored the dam- aged sections and put it in a protective sleeve,'' Ms Lewis says. Auckland Libraries has now reunited the family tree with its owner, 92-year-old Margot Keiller. Mrs Keiller lived in several homes on Waiheke before moving to Hawke's Bay. Her daughter Elizabeth Gamlen is still a resident on the island. Ms Gamlen says her mother is the keeper of the family history and can still recall all of the details of their family's genealogy. My mother and I would like to know where the docu- ment was found and are hop- ing the person who handed it in at Waiheke library will come forward.'' This sentiment is echoed by Ms Lewis. We don't need any more information about the Jen- nings family but we are still keen to find out where the document was found. We would like the Wai- heke resident who handed the family tree in to get in touch with us again,'' she says. Anyone with any information should contact Ms Lewis on Seonaid.Lewis@auckland council.govt.nz or 301 0101.
